Preserving the Texas Farm Mutuals – The Farm Mutual model in Texas is a distinct model of operation that has been in effect for over 100 years. Texas continues to grow exponentially as people flock to the state for various opportunities. Although the Texas landscape continues to shift at a rapid pace, Farm Mutuals continue to play a crucial role in the Texas insurance marketplace. TAMIC will continue to promote the vital role Farm Mutuals fill in Texas, explain the economic impact they make across the state, and educate legislators on the coverages Farm Mutuals offer to Texas insurance consumers.
Monitoring potential changes to the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association – Texas Farm Mutuals issue policies to their members which provide wind coverage. Farm Mutuals do not cede wind exposure to the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA). As a result, Farm Mutuals retain wind exposure on its policies and are not members of TWIA. TWIA has numerous proposals for the 2023 legislative session. TAMIC will diligently monitor those proposals and advocate against any legislation which would threaten how Farm Mutuals operate in Texas.
